Looks Angelina Jolie isn't so popular after all!

During a satellite interview with CNN's Sanjay Gupta on Wednesday, the 35-year-old mom of six revealed that life can get pretty lonely when her role as the UN's Goodwill Ambassador forces them to be apart.

How does she cope?

"I'll talk to my family," the actress -- who is currently in Pakistan -- said. "I talk to Brad [Pitt]; he wants to know as much as he can about these issues and every trip. He's been here as well; he came with me after the earthquake. But I don't know, I don't have a lot of friends I talk to. He is really the only person I talk to."

Jolie arrived in Pakistan earlier this week to meet with victims of a recent flood. To date, the natural disaster has reportedly affected 17 million people and left 1,700 people dead.

And though she misses her family, Jolie says her children understand why she must leave them behind to fully engage in the relief efforts.

"I tell my children why I'm going and I explain to them why I was packing flashlights and food. They help me pack some things," she says. "My children are from a lot of these countries, so I want them to understand what's happening in Africa, the boys to understand what's happening if there's something current in their countries, and for all of them to know about each other's countries as well."
